This easy Mexican Quinoa, Black Bean, and Corn Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing makes the perfect healthy lunch or dinner.
During hot summer months, I am constantly making batches of salads to have for quick and easy healthy lunches and dinners and this Mexican inspired salad with quinoa, black beans, corn, and a creamy citrus avocado dressing is at the top of the list. The dressing is creamy from the avocado, slightly spicy from the ancho chili powder, and just sweet enough from the orange juice and honey. Then paired with the hearty quinoa, earthy black beans, and sweet summer corn - it makes one delicious salad. When I am really hungry I add some grilled chicken, steak, shrimp, or tofu to the mix as well for some extra protein.
